Most law firms charge their clients both an hourly rate and a percentage of the total estate to assist in carrying out the probate of the estate. At Drake Legal we do not do this. We will charge you a fixed fee to administer the estate to be agreed before we start acting on your behalf. We will stick to this fee unless matters arise during the course of the probate that we were not made aware of when we provided the fixed fee quotation.
If you prefer we would consider acting on an hourly rate. If you request these terms then we will charge you £125.00 per hour plus VAT and disbursements.
